Master's degree in Advanced Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering (MAMME)

School of Mathematics and Statistics (FME)

The master’s degree in Advanced Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering (MAMME) (master's degree website) is a master's programme in mathematics offered at the School of Mathematics and Statistics (FME).

The courses offered in MAMME allow our students to design their curriculum with two different orientations: a pure mathematics curriculum (oriented to research in fundamental mathematics) or an applied mathematics curriculum (preparing them for applied mathematics research and for interdisciplinary teamwork, in collaboration with engineers, physicists, biologists, economists, etc.).

The curriculum comprises a total of 60 ECTS credits, divided into 45 credits for courses and 15 for the master’s thesis. It is intended to be completed in one academic year. In addition, MAMME offers the possibility of enrolling for up to 22.5 ECTS credits in other master's degrees in mathematics or statistics, or in other UPC master's programmes, opening the path for an interdisciplinary curriculum based on selected courses in master's degrees in engineering and applied sciences. See the MAMME focus proposals at http://mamme.masters.upc.edu/en.

Academic requirements for admission to master's degrees
Specific requirements

This master's degree is aimed at students with good abstract reasoning, an interest in problem solving, strong work habits and a liking for mathematics.

A scientific background is required, with basic mathematical foundations. For this reason, a bachelor's degree in mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering, economics or science is recommended. This list is non-exhaustive, and all applications will be reviewed on an individual basis.

Admission criteria

The following elements will be taken into consideration during the evaluation process: the academic record, the CV, a statement of purpose and, if deemed necessary, a personal interview and recommendation letters.

Pre-enrolment period open.
